FWIW, most if not all of the current nbusiness/office grade photocopiers now use scanning technology rather than the more analogue technology that used to be common. So if you get something "photocopied", most likely a digital file will have been created.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
